Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E-binding protein 2 - Q13542 (4EBP2_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for Q13542: 2
Repressor of translation initiation involved in synaptic plasticity, learning and memory formation (By similarity). Regulates EIF4E activity by preventing its assembly into the eIF4F complex: hypophosphorylated form of EIF4EBP2 competes with EIF4G1/EIF4G3 and strongly binds to EIF4E, leading to repress translation. In contrast, hyperphosphorylated form dissociates from EIF4E, allowing interaction between EIF4G1/EIF4G3 and EIF4E, leading to initiation of translation (PubMed:25533957). EIF4EBP2 is enriched in brain and acts as a regulator of synapse activity and neuronal stem cell renewal via its ability to repress translation initiation (By similarity). Mediates the regulation of protein translation by hormones, growth factors and other stimuli that signal through the MAP kinase and mTORC1 pathways (By similarity). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Hypophosphorylated EIF4EBP2 interacts with EIF4E; phosphorylation of EIF4EBP2 by mTORC1 causes dissociation of the complex allowing EIF4G1/EIF4G3 to bind and consequent initiation of translation (PubMed:7935836, PubMed:24207126, PubMed:21661078, PubMed:25533957). Interacts with RPTOR; promoting phosphorylation by mTORC1 (By similarity). Interacts with PCMT1; required to prevent isoaspartate accumulation and convert isoaspartate to Asp (By similarity). UniProt
Intrinsically disordered protein that undergoes folding upon phosphorylation (PubMed:25533957). Hypophosphorylated form interacts strongly with EIF4E using (1) the YXXXXLPhi motif, that undergoes a disorder-to-helix transition upon binding and (2) the secondary EIF4E binding sites (residues 78-82) (PubMed:24207126, PubMed:25533957). Phosphorylation at Thr-37 and Thr-46 induces folding of region encompassing residues from Pro-18 to Arg-62 of into a four-stranded beta-domain that sequesters the helical YXXXXLPhi motif into a buried beta-strand, blocking accessibility to EIF4E. Protein phosphorylated at Thr-37 and Thr-46 is however unstable and subsequent phosphorylation at Ser-65, Thr-70 and Ser-83 is required to stabilize the fold, decreasing affinity for EIF4E by a factor of 4000 (PubMed:24207126, PubMed:25533957).

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
